As per the quintessential saying, gems are a womans best friend. And that could not be any truer. After all, there are all the perks and benefits when it comes to ownership. You might say its a form of investment. Therefore, its perquisites are enjoyed not only in the present but can be look forward to in the future. Out of the many gemstones in the catalog, you may want to look into the aquamarine.
What makes gemstones so valuable and precious. First of all, theres a certain sense of fancy and inspiration when we appreciate that these are pieces of nature. After all, they are composed of certain minerals that have been compressed beneath the earths crust. Its a quintessential natural creation. After all, with just a little additional ingredient or impurity, it can turn out wholly different.
No wonder, then, that gems perfectly capture our flights of fancy. Also, it goes without mentioning the obvious, but gemstones are real beauties. The way they catch the light, and glimmer, shimmer, and shine make them classic centerpieces of jewelries and other trinkets. No wonder some people are willing to shell out a lot of money just to have their own jewels.
Another factor that rightly makes them so precious is their scarcity and rarity. As already said, with just a slight change in composition, everything can turn out differently. Theres only so much distance that miners are willing to plumb so as to get these sparklers, and having been mined since time immemorial, the supply is few. But the demand is filled to overflowing. So you know how that goes.
Now, its time to go back to our titular gemstone. Its appellation comes from the Latin term that aptly translates to Water of the Sea. Its beautifully and fittingly named, indeed. In fact, this gems facade evokes the picture perfect depiction of the oceans crystalline waters, with the glow and glimmer seemingly alluding to the waves of the sea.
There are a lot of superstitions surrounding gems. A lot of people, especially in the past, tend to use them as amulets. Of course, that kind of tradition that always carries to the present. However, far fetched these claims are, you have to admit that they fan the flames of demand and supply. This Seawater Gem is famous for its legend as a talisman of good luck and protection, especially for those who are traveling near or over water. Its also supposedly a fount of eternal youth, as well as happiness.
You need only to trust science and its antics to manufacture a synthetic version. This one is a really smart move. After all, just with the right components of beryl plus a few more elements and compounds, any lab can create a selfsame version of this transparent pale blue crystal. It is not wanting in terms of beauty and durability. However, it lacks the sentimental connection with Natures history that some people find heady and addictive.
Therefore, synthetic counterparts live up to the physical, chemical, and even optical properties of our sky blue Seawater gemstone. However, its was manufactured in a lab. For some people, this is good enough. For the sentimental lot, on the other hand, it has kind of lost its cachet. Synthetics are valid deputies, but what any collector should look out for are the Imitations. There are nonprecious minerals that can be dowdily presented as something theyre not, and as expensive counterparts, at that.
Our greenish to bluish, light and deep, prismatic crystalline stone is really a beauty and joy to behold. Its faceted prism is lustrous, vitreous, and sparkly. It doesnt lack in brilliance and clarity. It meshes well with any kind of jewelry, from pendants, rings, brooches, and whatnot. With this beautiful gem, one may as well say that its value transcends any number.
